Abstract:
Ice cold water was employed on both laboratory and pilot plant scales to extract re sidual monoethylamine reagent from decrystallized cotton materials. The use of cold water retained the high degree of decrystallization achieved and further retained the cellulose I crystal lattice of native cotton in the remaining crystalline regions. Advan tages of this cold water extraction process compared with use of organic solvents are enumerated.
